Area History from the Canby Depot Museum

This week I started reading the 1898 edition of the Canby News. This is the oldest yearly book of the Canby News at the Depot. We have some earlier papers back to 1890 but they are not bound in book form or complete. In the old papers there is significant national and world news in the papers.
